Finding the perfect lingerie for any occasion or mood that will make you look and feel amazing can be a bit tricky when you don’t know where to start. The normal stores that carry lingerie at any local mall might satisfy your craving for bras and panties at that moment, but what about the lingerie brands that are exclusive, unique, luxurious, elegant, comfortable, and sexy? Lingerie that will make you look and feel amazing in a variety of colors, fabrics, and shapes is only a click away. With amazing reviews by product consumers and my own lingerie shopping, you will want to start your very own intimates collection.
Bordelle is easily my top favorite lingerie designer because of the intense design and construction incorporated into each garment. The details and fit are seductive with an elegant bad girl attitude, all while remaining ultra luxe and superior. The Angela dress is their signature piece that put the U.K. based brand on top of the luxury lingerie world. Giving the illusion of a perfect hourglass figure, the dress is structured from customized elastic ribbons and finished with 18k gold plated details. Bordelle has an impeccable reputation for having unique pieces that have a dominating look to them, while remaining stunningly beautiful and feminine. There is nothing better than having a unique garment that will make you look and feel amazing. Purchase Bordelle on their website or contact them at email@example.com to find a specialized boutique that will carry the collections.
2 Stella McCartney
Like her innovative and eco-friendly fashion house empire, Stella McCartney created her own lingerie brand just recently in 2012. Paying attention to detail and fit, her designs are modern and fresh with pieces made to be mixed and matched and bra straps designed to be seen. Each garment is made of organic cotton and recycled metal hardware for a beautiful lightweight feeling. Bras also come in five different bra shapes for a custom fit. The Stella McCartney lingerie line offers amazing support with slimming technology for everyday wear and comfort.

3 Mimi Holliday
Another budding U.K. brand, the Mimi Holliday range is sweet, charming, fun, and sexy. With bra sizing from AA to GG cups, this is a brand that has mastered an incredible fit with gorgeous color and print combinations. Delicate lace, silk chiffon, and adorned with the bow trio details, Mimi Holliday has a certain signature flair in their styles and designs. One of the best sellers is the silk chiffon balcony bra that offers padding in 100 percent cotton for a perfect, natural looking lift. I adore this brand because of the comfort and beautifully colored lace. Purchase Mimi Holliday at their website at damaris.co.uk or at Nordstroms, Asos.com and net-a-porter.com.
